CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, August 14, 2017 — People Against Dirty, the makers of Method cleaning products, is the latest brand to join the growing How2Recycle® program. Method customers will soon see the recycling label on a new stand-up pouch that is recyclable at store drop-off.
The new line of Method dishwasher detergent packs will use Amcor Flexibles mono-material recyclable pouch solution that is a groundbreaking innovation in flexible packaging because it contains 20% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic and is recyclable at Store Drop-off with other plastic bags, films, and wraps.
“We are delighted to help Method reach their sustainability goals through packaging innovation,” said Brian Ingraham, Product Development Manager for Amcor Flexibles North America. “The PCR recyclable pouch is a great example of sustainability-driven collaboration that adds value to the Method brand, the consumers, and the environment as a whole.”
“People Against Dirty further propels its sustainability initiatives by joining How2Recycle. Their consumers will now be empowered to know exactly how to properly prepare their packaging for recycling just by looking at the package,” said Caroline Cox, Project Associate, Sustainable Packaging Coalition.
The How2Recycle Label is a U.S.-based standardized labeling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public. How2Recycle is a project of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition®, a membership-based group that brings together business, educational institutions, and government agencies to collectively broaden the understanding of packaging sustainability and develop meaningful improvements for packaging solutions.
